Hello folks, Dupin here.
A lot of you may have noticed that Emp has stepped down from his admin position for some time now. Don't worry, it's something good happening to him that forced him to resign from this.
I would like to thank him for all the time he put on the wiki. He really is the reason the wiki is not burned down, especially the last few months. So, adios good pal and may the roads bring you good fortune.
Good news is he wrote a book, Dreamer from the Deep. It's a lovevraftian tale of madness taking place in a seaside town. If you are a fan of the genre like me, you will definitely enjoy this.
He is self-publishing too, so give this man some extra love. If you are worried that the physical paperback will not be of good quality, I bo…Read more >
Before I continue, this post contains spoilers for the movie.
I just went and saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi and it was one of the worst films I have seen. Not only was it very boring in the middle of the film and had several plotlines that led nowhere, more importantly, this was a disgrace to one of the most iconic franchises in history. And that's coming from a guy who is pretty 'meh' about the franchise. I'm not even about these guys who nitpick movies. I even loved The Force Awakens!
I will not write about how the movie was boring, instead I will write about the god-awful writing and plot.
First, this was pretty much a copy of the original trilogy (especially the third film). Some of the main plot points were directly copied from those films:

Hello peeps and creeps. Dropping by to let you know that the voting for the Pasta of the Month has begun. I dropped the ball and the voting was delayed (Emp again swooped in for the save). Sorry for that. You can now head over to the voting page. You can find the nominated stories there. Just click the link and cast your vote.
Also, we moved away from the built-in poll system, since it is prone to exploitation. We now use Strawpoll, which seems pretty good. We are still not sure what will be the definite system for voting, so if you have any suggestions, please let us know in the comments!
Happy reading!Read more >
Hey folks. Dupin here. I have been a bit inactive late, apologies for that, but I want to let you guys know of a really cool channel I have been following for a while: Tale Foundry. They make videos analyzing art and mainly literature. I highly recommend checking them out.
Recently they created a Patreon, because it is hard to keep the production value at its current level. If you have a spare dollar to spare, be cool and head over to their Patreon to donate.
Their recent video about Patreon.
By the way, next week my exams are over and I will finally be able to grab my banhammer again. You have been warned!Read more >
Recently I decide to check out the Reddit creepypasta threads to see what the fuss was all about, and I have to say I was severely disappointed. I posted a couple of my stories on the shortscarystories thread, which admittedly aren't masterpieces on their own, but after they received no feedback I decided to check out the liked stories there to see what people on the thread like. So I read the most upvoted pastas on the thread and I found the answer to my inquiry. People on the thread like shit. Pretty much all of the best stories there would get deleted on here without much of a second glance (only a couple float around our Quality Standards). And keep in mind these stories I link below have almost 100% like/dislike ratio.
So, I tread thro…Read more >
